Product Details

Valley Yarns Sonora is a fantastic A-line women’s cardigan coat that will become your cool weather favorite knit in Becket. The sweater features deep double seed stitch cuffs, front bands, and a stunning collar with a large-scale cable pattern running up each front panel and sleeves. You also have the option of patch pockets. Sonora is knit flat in one piece from the bottom up to the underarms. The collar stitches are picked up along the neck edges and front bands and knit back and forth in rows. The optional patch pockets are worked separately and then seamed to the fronts. Becket is a customer favorite in the Valley Yarns line, and its scrumptious blend of super fine alpaca and wool has us all ready to put it to work. The cable pattern is charted and written out.
